Very interesting dish. Fresh and tangy with the lemon, green onions, apricot and cranberry... yet earthy and creamy with the squash, black beans and hearty quinoa. I am not so sure about using the bay leaf again as I did not like that flavor with the fruits and mint. I am not sure that this would be a good stuffing due to the strong flavors. That aside, this is a nice way to use quinoa and makes a tasty protein packed vegetarian entree or side dish for a meaty meal. Thanks!
